U is for ...



26 posts for the 26 letters of the alphabet. Today's post is brought to you by the letter 'U'. When I get to Z, I will draw the REread prize pack. To win it click here and get social.  


U just has to be for unicorn, it's the most logical word for the letter 'U'. I've always been a bit of a 'I want a pony' kind of girl and unicorns are pretty much at the top-end of the pony-want-need scale. When I was about five my grandpa came to visit us in Victoria and brought with him 'grandpa gifts'. As anyone who has a grandpa knows the 'grandpa gift' is pretty much the most anticipated and then fawned over of the gift realm. My little brother got a fat bear which we instantly named 'Fat Albert' and I received a delightfully synthetic unicorn. It smelled of wonderful plasticy stuff and when I took it into the fluorescent lights at the bank it's mane turned a difference colour. This unicorn is now lost along with my first bike and several family cats. I can't remember the name I gave that unicorn, but I sure did love it.

You know you want one.

god i love a good unicorn, seriously! If i ever got a sleeve tattoo (which has about the same likely hood as ever seeing a unicorn) I would 100% include a unicorn in it.
